AbstractEU standard measures. Sport. Topics: This round of Eurobarometer surveys, composed mainly of trend questions, queried respondents on the standard Eurobarometer measures, such as how satisfied they were with their present lives, whether they attempted to persuade others close to them to share their views on subjects they held strong opinions about, whether they discussed political matters, what their respective country´s goals should be, and how they viewed the need for societal change. Additional questions focused on the respondents´ knowledge of and opinions on the European Union (EU), including how well-informed they felt about the EU, what sources of information about the EU they used, whether their country had benefited from being an EU member, and the extent of their personal interest in EU matters. There were also a number of questions regarding national identity. In particular, respondents were asked if they identified themselves more as Europeans or as citizens of their respective countries, whether or not they were proud to be Europeans, with what region they most associated, and what, if any, significance did the EU flag hold for them personally. Another major focus of the survey was the subject of sport. Respondents were asked about frequency of participation, motivation to participate, benefits received and values promoted, what role the EU should play in regulating sport in Europe, and about negative issues associated with sporting activities. Demography: Age, gender, nationality, marital status, left-right political self-placement, occupation, age at completion of education, household income, type and size of locality, and region.

Sampling Procedure Sampling Procedure
A multi-stage, random (probability) sampling design was used for this Eurobarometer. In the first stage, primary sampling units (PSU) were selected from each of the administrative regionals units in every country (Statistical Office of the European Community, EUROSTAT NUTS 2 or equivalent). PSU selection was systematic with probability proportional to population size, from sampling frames stratified by the degree of urbanization. In the next stage, a cluster of starting addresses was selected from each sampled PSU, at random. Further addresses were chosen systematically using standard random route procedures as every Nth address from th initial address. In each household, a respondent was drawn, at random, following the closest birthday rule. No more than one interview was conducted in each household.
Mode of Collection Mode of Collection
Face-to-face interviews with standardized questionnaire in people´s home in the appropriate national language. As far as the data capture is concerned, CAPI (Computer Assisted Personal Interview) was used in those countries where this technique was available.

2013-4-8P7_PT REGION I - NUTS 2 (V492)Starting with Eurobarometer 62 the NUTS 2 REGIONS for PORTUGAL have changed. In accordance with the official EUROSTAT NUTS 2 version 2003 the region “LISBOA E VALE DO TEJO” is split up and the subregion “Lezíria do Tejo” reinstated to the “Alentejo” Region; “Médio Tejo” and “Oeste” are reinstated to the “Centro” Region. The documentation for NUTS 2 code 3 “Lisboa e Vale do Tejo” is not correct and should read “LISBOA” (NUTS2003-2010: PT17). Regions “CENTRO” and “ALENTEJO” do not change names but regional coverage (NUTS2003-2010: PT16 and PT18). The regions “NORTE” (PT11) and “ALGARVE” (PT15) remain unchanged. Starting with Eurobarometer 62 the autonomous regions AÇORES (PT20) and MADEIRA (PT30) are not covered anymore. This has been confirmed by TNS Opinion & Social as of March 26, 2013.
2013-4-8P7_GR REGION II- NUTS 1 (V518)Starting with Eurobarometer 62 the Northern and Southern Aegean Islands ("Voreio Aigaio" with NUTS2 code GR41 and "Notio Aigaio" with Starting with Eurobarometer 62 the Northern and Southern Aegean Islands ("Voreio Aigaio" with NUTS 2 code GR41 and "Notio Aigaio" with NUTS 2 code GR42) as well as the Ionian Islands ("Ionia Nisia" with NUTS 2 code GR22) are not covered. The documentation for NUTS 1 code 4 is not correct. The data only cover the island of Crete (NUTS 2 code GR43). This has been confirmed by TNS Opinion & Social as of March 26, 2013.
2014-9-29P7_AT (V495) - REGION NUTS 2Code order is not correct: Comparing the frequencies for Austrian NUTS 2 regions (Bundesländer) Steiermark, Kärnten/Osttirol, Nieder-Österreich and Burgenland with corresponding results in other Eurobarometer surveys and also considering their actual relative population size, the P7 data in Eurobarometer 62.0 (V495) presumably exchange Code 5 (Steiermark) for Code 6 (Kärnten/Osttirol), resp. Code 7 (Nieder-Österreich) for Code 8 (Burgenland). This is true for the original TNS dataset as well as for the dataset prepared and distributed by the archive. Data should be recoded as follows (SPSS syntax): RECODE V495 (5=6)(6=5)(7=8)(8=7). Please notice the application of any weight (e.g. W1) will again inverse the proportion of the weighted frequencies between the affected regions, irrespective of the correction performed on unweighted data. Region NUTS 2 is in advance introduced in the calculation of the post-stratification weighting factors as provided by TNS.
2007-11-28P7_GB REGION NUTS 1Within the United Kingdom NUTS 1 region NORTH WEST (v489, code 7) the distribution for SIZE OF COMMUNITY (v460) differs considerably compared to Eurobarometer wave 63 ff.. Up to wave 61 the regional subdivision was different. In addition distribution also differs considerably compared to Eurobarometer 62.1 and 62.2.
2018-11-15P7_ES Region NUTS I (v491) and P7_ES Region NUTS II (v519 and v520)Please note that for region variable v491 “P7 REGION I - SPAIN” the distribution for the regions “Extremadura”, “Galicia”, “Madrid”, “Murcia”, “Navarra”, and “Pais Valenciano” diverges from those present in Eurobarometer 61 and wave 62.1 ff.. Consequently, variables v519 "P7 REGION II - SPAIN (10 CATEGORIES)" and v520 "P7 REGION II - SPAIN (7 CATEGORIES)" are affected, too. After consulting Kantar Public we suggest that the variables should be used with caution and not without the following recoding (SPSS-Syntax): Recode v491 (10=16) (11=10) (12=11) (13=12) (14=13) (16=14). Compute v519=v491. Recode v519 (11=1) (3,6=2) (14,17=3) (2,15=4) (12=5) (7,8,10=6) (9=7) (4,16=8) (1,13=9) (5=10). Compute v520=v491. Recode v520 (3,6,11=1) (2,14,15,17=2) (12=3) (7,8,10=4) (4,9,16=5) (1,13=6) (5=7). Execute.

  •  EB - Standard and Special Eurobarometer
    Since the early nineteen seventies the European Commission´s “Standard and Special Eurobarometer” are regularly monitoring the public opinion in the European Union member countries at times. Interviews are conducted face-to-face, in each spring and each autumn, at all times based on new samples with a size 1000 respondents per country. Separate samples are drawn for Northern Ireland and East Germany. After the EU enlargement in 2004, remaining and new Candidate Countries are also regularly included in selected surveys. The Standard Eurobarometer modules ask for attitudes towards European unification, institutions and policies, complemented by measurements for general socio-political orientations, as well as by respondent and household demographics. Intermittently special Eurobarometer modules extensively address topics, such as environment, science and technology, health or family issues, social or ethnic exclusion, quality of life etc. The “European Communities Studies” 1970-1973 can be considered forerunner studies, as well the “Attitudes towards Europe” from 1962.
